Dani Ceballos insists his ‘goal is to return to Real Madrid’ after loan spell with Arsenal finishes

Dani Ceballos insists he wants to return to Real Madrid once his second season on loan at Arsenal comes to an end.

The Spain midfielder played a crucial role for the Gunners last season on their way to a record 14th FA Cup triumph, and returned for a second straight loan spell at the Emirates Stadium in September after making 37 appearances for the club in 2019/20.

However, the 24-year-old has been less influential and more inconsistent this campaign and before the 4-0 win at West Brom at the weekend had started just two of the previous five Premier League matches.

And when asked if a third stint temporarily away from the Santiago Bernabeu would be an option, Ceballos said his aim is to return to his parent club and become a key part of their squad.

‘A third year on loan? No, my goal is to return to Real Madrid and be important at the best club in the world,’ Ceballos told Spanish radio show El Larguero.

‘I believe that one day I will come back and be able to return the affection that the fans showed me.

‘For various reasons, I didn’t leave the club in the best manner.’ Read from source….
